Just in time for the World Cup, adidas is set to release a one-for-one reproduction of the original Samba, maybe the most well-known soccer shoe ever made—well, indoor soccer shoe, at least. Soft leather upper. Suede T-toe. Textured rubber cupsole. Gold foil embossing. Metallic detailing. Everything that made the sneaker great when it first hit shelves in the ’50s is present here in the Samba OG. Both the black and white colorways drop tomorrow (June 1), so maybe mark your calendar if you’re seeking some nostalgic style. Then you can wear them to cheer on a team who isn’t the USA. 

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
